Vimergy Reishi 10:1 Extract Powder 250g
Reishi has been used in China and East Asia for over 2000 years. In these regions, this mushroom is considered an absolute “elite herb” in class with eg. Ginseng, Goji and Shisandra. The red Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is an adaptogenic herb.
Adaptogens are herbs / plants that work to increase the body’s ability to adapt to various forms of physical, mental, chemical, or biological stress.
Since this is already an extract, you can enjoy it directly in a tea, smoothie, hot chocolate or coffee. If you buy a powder that is not an extract, you must brew tea on it first or make your own extract to be able to benefit from the useful substances.
Dosage adults: 1/2 teaspoon 1-2 times a day in warm water, chocolate, coffee, smoothie or other beverage.
Note: Do not exceed the recommended dose. Dietary supplements shouldn’t replace a balanced diet. Keep out of the reach of children.
- High doses of reishi have a blood-thinning effect and should be avoided by people with certain bleeding disorders, thrombocytopenia (coagulation problems), those taking medication for high blood pressure, anticoagulants, or blood-thinning drugs. Also avoid two weeks before surgery.
- Reishi seems to aggravate low blood pressure in those who have problems with it.
- There is insufficient reliable information on the safety of reishi intake during pregnancy or lactation.
